I have to tell you that I didn´t get a bunch out of general conference, because it was all in Portuguese!
Makayla serves in the boundaries of two wards. One of the Bishops has a wife who is learning English, she and I were able to communicate through face book. It was such a treat to talk with someone from Brazil...Makayla is also shifting in responsibility from taking a back seat to taking a lead & speaking the language more!
Dayanna Martel is like our mission Mom, that is so cool that you are communicating. Because Sister Lima could hold her own conversation, haha, I didn´t talk all that much previously when we were with Dayanna and the Bishop. So then all of a sudden, I am leading the conversations (with the gift of tongues of course). This was kind of a funny switch for them I think, and a surprise. I will start by saying that I have already grown in leaps and bounds this week. My companion from the MTC and one other Sister that also has 4 months are training too.
Makayla's first week training!...
I think that President likes to do it this way because we are "young" and still animated. I am so grateful to say that I was blessed with enough faith and peace to go to work with confidence this week. I kept thinking to myself, "I cannot believe what I am doing!" It was a good week, and Sister Justino is such a cutie.

Lots of Love Makayla.
